As mentioned a couple of weeks ago, I spoke at The Millennials Conference in L.A. on Wednesday, and the event's shining moment had nothing to do with what was going on up on stage.
Just to the left of the moderator's podium was a giant screen which displayed questions that participants in the room texted to the panel assembled on the dias. I've seen these screens at many conferences lately, but at this one, it was uncommonly busy and peppered with pertinent and intelligent queries (oh, those keener Millennials!).
Six rows in front of said screen sat a blonde woman. Throughout the day, her cellphone kept ringing a chirpy-bells tone, prompting her to leave the UCLA meeting room each time, but not before starting her conversation, and quite crisply I may add, before she reached the door.
After the fourth or fifth call, instead of a question, the following popped up on the screen, much to the delight and guffaws of the assembled crowd:
Darling, it's called 'vibrate'
There were no further interruptions.
